Zendaya and Tom Holland (2017-2019, 2021-Present)
Rumors Zendaya was romantically involved with Tom Holland began in the summer of 2017 after the pair got close filming "Spider-Man: Homecoming" together. They denied anything romantic was going on between them, but Zendaya's close friend Skai Jackson's mother added fuel to the rumor mill. Replying to another user's comment on a JustJared Instagram post that questioned the pair's relationship, Kiya Cole wrote, "Yes. It's true. They been on the low for a while."
Zendaya and Holland played coy, though, with Holland posting on Instagram to insist Zendaya was just his "mate." Zendaya also shut down the relationship rumors in an August 2017 interview with Variety after she was questioned about the possibility of romance with Holland, stating, "He's a great dude. He's literally one of my best friends."
Whether or not the pair ever dated around 2017 remains to be confirmed, but it stands to reason they definitely were not dating by the time Zendaya began seeing Jacob Elordi in 2019.
As fate would have it, Zendaya and Holland had two more Spider-Man movies to film, so they found themselves back in each other's webs. In July 2021, they were spotted locking lips in a car, finally confirming that their relationship had taken a romantic turn, despite the question marks of the past.
The happy couple have not looked back since. While they continue to be mostly private about their ongoing relationship, they're not shy about expressing how much they love each other, especially on their birthdays. On Zendaya's 25th birthday in 2021, Holland posted a photo of himself with Zendaya huddling close for a sweet picture together while on the set of Spider-Man. "My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays. Gimme a call when your up xxx," he captioned the post. Later, on Holland's 26th birthday in 2022, Zendaya posted a loved-up photo with him and captioned it, "Happiest of birthdays to the one who makes me the happiest <3."
